Storyline

Schneider, a hit man, gets a call from Mertens on the morning of his birthday. He has a rush job for Schneider who refuses it, because it is his birthday and he has promised Lucy, his wife, to help her with the preparations for the dinner party. Mertens insists that it is an important matter. Schneider is told that the target is Ramon Bax, a writer. He lives alone in a secluded place. "It's an easy job. With a little luck you're back home before noon." Schneider accepts the assignment. What seems to be a simple job turns out to be more than expected.

Trivia

The part of Bax was intended for German actor Waldemar Kobus. However, he couldn't master the Dutch language or mannerisms required for the role. Director Alex van Warmerdam decided to take on the role himself on the advice of his wife and co-actor Annet Malherbe. See more »

Awful!
3 December 2015 | by tabjeepSee all my reviews

I really cannot understand how this movie got rated with 7 stars. I'm from Europe and I've got to admit that I'm not a fun of European films. We really suck on that field... most of films luck in just a little bit of everything.

So does this film. No music score at all, no acting, no scenario and completely awful landscape. Of course there are twists and turns in this movie but cause of bad acting, filming and no music at all ends up completely spineless.

A few characters show up completely out of the blue, adding nothing to the "so called" story, and everything got lost by the end. Avoid this "for god sake" 7-star rated movie. I think my next choice will be Bolywood. Im sure they are 100% better than this European "masterpiece".

Plain waste of time. Keep yourselves away from this...
